Known as a ‘national treasure’ by the press, Marcel is a singer-songwriter, producer and DJ, having risen to fame with Blazin Squad in 2002.
Now, in between TV fame and media commitments, Marcel is cementing himself as an innovative artist and recently released the afro-swing hit They Wanna Know, a well-received foray into his forthcoming EP Circles due for release later this year.
Not afraid of incorporating his most personal experiences in his songwriting, his latest offering Sober addresses the price of fame, highlighting the side to it that people don’t see; the lows, the pressure of the media and the unwanted attention.
Opening with They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, pray for me, he reveals an honest vulnerability, touching on his struggle with depression and how he is now, thankfully, on the other side.
